Course: Landscape Photography Family Workshop
Date: Wednesday 26th August 2020
Time: 11:00 – 15:30
This family workshop will focus on how to take great landscape photographs. We’ll photograph in Greenwich Park and along the River Thames, capturing the urban landscapes together.
We will teach families how to use camera mechanics, light & composition to create dynamic landscape photographs. We’ll look at famous landscape photographs together, discussing how the images where taken and how the same skills can be applied in our own images. Our students will learn more about how their camera works, and how to use aperture creatively to make their landscapes stand out. The course will meet in the Queen’s House Orangery, and be taught outdoors. We’ll spend the majority of the day outdoors photographing the iconic London views together so come prepared for the outdoors!
Each family will receive one of their own photographic prints in the post after the course.

- Group size will be limited to 12 people to adhere to social distancing.
- Families will be asked to frequently wash their hands.
- If renting a camera this will be cleaned before and after your use.

The National Maritime Museum (NMM) in Greenwich, London, is the leading maritime museum of the United Kingdom and may be the largest museum of its kind in the world. The historic buildings form part of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site, and it also incorporates the Royal Observatory and 17th-century Queen’s House.
Since earliest times Greenwich has had associations with the sea and navigation. It was a landing place for the Romans; Henry VIII lived here;
the navy has roots on the waterfront. The Museum has the most important holdings in the world on the history of Britain at sea comprising more than two million items. Its British portraits collection is exceeded in size only by that of the National Portrait Gallery and its holdings relating to Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson and Captain James Cook, among many other individuals, are unrivalled.
